RIP. Even if you didn't agree with his views, the man was kind and well regarded by all. 53 sure is young and with three young children, how sad.
Wow....what a shocker, and how sad.
RIP. And I feel terrible for his family.
He was a great example of how to live life for those with cancer. His positive outlook on life, even when the chips were down, was inspirational.
He also is a prime example of how tough living with cancer can be. One moment it is in remission, the next it has come back with a vengeance and spread throughout your body. Throughout it all, he was positive until the day he died.
My condolences to his family and friends. He was courageous about his cancer.
53 is a horrible age to die from cancer. Not that any age is good but it seems that 53 is young for that form.
Yes it is!
Tony Snow will be missed, but he'll also live on as a shining example of how to live a short life to it's fullest.
This so sad. He was one of the few Republicans I could recognize as a decent person. RIP, Tony Snow.
I won't be disingenuous -- frankly the guy was a tool. But he had more class than a lot of the conservative yo-yos who clog up the TV airwaves.
It is sad that he died so young. I feel bad for his family. Financially they will be well taken care of, but not having a dad or husband....
So, naturally, I get cancer "ads" at the bottom of the page.
Would that he kept a blog of his experiences, the better to enlighten others with bowel problems, that they dismiss in a 'denial' mind-set.
This should serve as a reminder to everyone of the importance of getting regular colonoscopies, especially starting at the age of 50 (younger with a family history of colon cancer). Colon cancer is often one of the most easily cured diseases if caught early, yet it is devastating and frequently intractable if found late.
I know it's been awhile, but I just wanted to thank everyone for being civil about this unlike some other threads on similar subjects with other controversial figures. One of which I had started when he first got sick and sadly went down that path some of these threads do. I realize there's a lot of acrimony lately politically, but this is truly just such a sad thing. As someone who lost someone close to me to cancer recently, it really hits home. I wouldn't wish this on my worst enemy. No one deserves this. No one. And to go so young. It's just so... sad.
So thank you again for remaining civil, RIP Tony.
